    A very good whisky. I was surprised that this whisky competes with my best williams pears brandys. Anyways this is to my liking.
    • Nose
      Malty, lots of green apples, pears, grapes and other green fruits, some vegetables, really just hints of honey
    • Taste
      Wow, very oily and liquorice, nice fruity sweetness, lots of pears like williams pears, smooth wood notes
    • Finish
      Medium long, smooth and warm - still having the fruity notes. No water needed.

    The nose is very deliciously fruity with a lot of pears, Haribo peaches and a bit of oak spiciness. The taste gets a bit oaky with vanilla ice-cream sticks and turns to a moderately bitter, albeit still fruity, finish with more wood and oak spices.

    white wine, pear brandy more orchard fruits, not too exuberant fruitiness, great balance, very good stuff

    Lots of fruits - mainly pears. Really reminds of some fruity williams pear brandy - just not as sweet. I just like it (of course I also like williams pear brandy).

    Very good whisky - as expected.
    • Nose
      Sweet, fresh and grassy at first nosing. Notes of lemon flavored panna cotta are coming up. Or is it manhattan cheesecake?
    • Taste
      Clean, sweet and grassy. Yes a grassy taste! A little bit zesty as well. Really has a delicate freshness and sweetness.
    • Finish
      Long and pleasant, becoming a little dry with notes of licorice.
